Chair&Boat / modular furniture&toy


What are the expectations of parents and society for children in the 21st century? What qualities should they own when they are being cared? For instance,courage, independence, cooperation, and harmony. "Chair& boat" can transform from an indoor child seat into an outdoor toy boat through the combination of inflation and modularity. We have borrowed the concept of dragon boat racing in traditional Chinese culture. In the process of rowing, not only can it strengthen children's physical fitness, but also promote children's communication, collaboration and other abilities, and cultivate their courage, harmony and other qualities.
